Welcome to my Blog! Here you’ll find posts about my life, inspiration I find on the way, and of course, writing updates, excerpts, and cover reveals! I’ll even be reviewing books I read (if you’re here for movies I’m into, check Monster thoughts). Grab your tea (or coffee) and stay awhile!

Exhaustion and Living in Your Own World


I’ve been so physically and mentally exhausted lately, it’s been really bad, so please do pardon my lack of long, thought out posts. Other things have taken up my time and attention.
It’s no secret that I love to write. Having shared with one other the basic plot of The Immortal’s Guide, Ive found myself glowing with the shared euphoria of anticipation. Finding my work to, as I’ve told him and countless others, to have grown exponentially, he applauded my character outline, the plot outline, and expressed that he could not wait to eye the greater journey that awaits all readers in my next book.

All of which I am most happy for all my fans to read. I just hope they find my work, as they did with the first book, very much to the liking.

My goal for anything I do is to do it better than I would have dreamed of doing. Things seem to go well for me with that mindset.

Exhaustion aside, I refuse to let anything deter me from my goals. And I hope all subsequent projects surpass my goals and more.

I need sleep.

Tomorrow is very busy day, indeed.

The New Year & A New Focus On My Vampires
I'm choosing, with this round of storytelling, to dive into 'harder topics,' and things I want to write about. I want to give my worlds more nuance, my characters more stakes, and hopefully more heart. I write for everyone but I cannot deny my experiences--Black experiences--are what have shaped me and should shape my writing. I'm adamant about this because of the erasure of my Black characters in THE DARK WORLD series by white readers.
The Tales of Sinner Sharpe: Dark Waters
This helped shape the nature of the story: Sinner is an outcast from this island. He has no magical ability, same as all from Othril, and when on the mainland, this lack of magical ability is apparent—he is ostracized not only because of his physical dark features, but his inability.
Gothic Horror And Inspiration
It was always my intention as of late, with Sinner Sharpe to delve into the horror he's facing--not physical horror--at least not yet, but the mental horror. He's seeing horrific visions, he's losing large gaps of time, he's being attacked on his ship (an already enclosed space) for weeks.
DRACULA is (finally) out in E-Book Format!
